Pony Breeds – American Shetland

American Shetland Pony Club

Name must not exceed 35 characters including spaces and punctuation.

There are 4 breed divisions within the American Shetland Pony Club:
• Foundation: The Foundation type pony is smaller, bigger bodied, and heavier boned. They have shorter, thicker necks and are shorter legged by proportion. For show purposes they may not measure over 42″ inches at the withers.
• Classic: The Classic type is a refined version of the British Shetland. Classics will generally have more substance than the ultra-refined Modern and less animation. Shall not exceed 46″ at the withers.
• Modern Pleasure: ponies in the Modern Pleasure division are animated but not as extreme in their movement as Moderns. Modern Pleasure ponies are shown with the tail in a natural position.
• Modern: the Modern type combines the beauty and hardiness of the more traditional Classic American Shetland with the excitement and animation of a Hackney pony. Modern Shetland Ponies are shown in two height categories, under 43″ at the wither and 43-46″ at the wither.
